ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The EarthStage Actors are dedicated to presenting the work of Dr. Kenneth Mills in a dramatic form which has been called a "theater of philosophy" and "modernday Shakespeare."

The text for EarthStage, scripted by playwright Barry Drodie, Ph.D., has been gathered from Dr. Mills' private library of recorded lectures. These spontaneous soliloquies, called "Unfoldments," bear an inherent drama that is dynamically staged by the Troupe.

EarthStage's programs include presentations of prose and poetry uniquely inspired by the fact that the Actors have the rare privilege of being directed by the author himself in discovering and expressing the many levels of meaning hidden within the scripts. Dr. Mills works in great detail with each Actor's voice, showing how Sound may create for the listener a doorway to a totally new perspective on these most provocative, philosophical ideas!

"This is interactive art, definitely not shallow entertainment. Kenneth Mills is a poet-warrior who moves through the universe in and at the speed of light -- right now!"
- Warren Bingham
Director, Shambhala Publications

"'Coat of Many Colors' is the title chosen for a lecture that was given extemporaneously by Dr. Kenneth Mills on August 23, 1992. Although I have scripted excerpts of Dr. Mills' works on previous occasions, this is the first time and entire Unfoldment has been put into dramatic form.

"The drama of 'Coat of Many Colors' is enacted on three distinct levels: the first is the level of ideation, the second is the level of manifestation, and the third is the bridge between them. The Prologue takes place in the Starry Kingdom, the idea realm or the "subtle spheres beyond manifestation." In the three Scenes we hear how the Message form the Starry Kingdom is made manifest on the practical level of everyday living. In Scene One we hear a discussion among four top-level execusitves of a major corporation. In Scene Two we hear a university professor lecturing to his students. In Scene Three we witness a conversation betwween a young man, Luke, who "thinks" he knows, and a wiser man, Lucius, who is offering what he knows. In the Finale we return to the rarefied atmosphere of the Starry Kingdom. Throughout the entire play we hear the voice of the Choric Figure, who fulfills the role of the chorus in the ancient Greek dramas and serves as the bridge between the action of the play and the audience.

"The stage production of 'Coat of Many Colors' calls for three Wizards who appear in the Prologue and Finale. When we came to do this recording, the author, Kenneth George Mills, was able to attend the recording session. We asked him if he would read those sections assigned to the Wizards, and he most graciously complied. Since Dr. Mills originally gave 'Coat of Many Colors' as a spontaneous lecture, he is in a sense the original Wizard of it all."
- Barry Brodie, Ph.D.
